So why do you love your car?

I was very grumpy today as I had to pay for my car to be repaired and I HATE paying for car repairs - always think of everything I could have bought from that money ! But then I thought about what I love about my little(well little in 4x4 terms:-) old car - here goes :

1. It's one of the cars in South Africa least likely to be hijacked or stolen.
2. I can't drive fast enough to get serious speeding tickets.
3. I can park on pavements !

And then I felt better. Here's a picture of the Blue Lady (you have to buy the bulldog seperately though )

Oh, and because it was free!

I hate having to pay for repairs, too. I recently spent $250 when the driver's side window fell down inside the door and wouldn't go back up. She's reliable, gets very good gas mileage, I can haul stuff in it and on it, and I recently got a new stereo so now I can plug in and listen to all my music! Whoo Hooo.

Here she is (Mazda Protege 5)
